Boooooya - Got over the hump...
Today's Thursday. That means On a Dead Machine at Newby's tonight, and only one more day until the weekend.

Days 'til the A-Day Game: 23
Days 'til Season Kickoff: 156

Bernie Machen, Florida's president, has put together a formal proposal for a college football playoff system. It was discussed in the SEC meetings back in March and will be on the agenda for the SEC spring meetings in April in Destin, FL. This is a REALLY big step toward possibly having a true national champion. Read more over at

Michigan has pinpointed Vandy's Kevin Stallings for their next head coach. Stallings has basically told them to get together an offer quickly and that he will NOT go through an interview process. Kinda how Nick Saban came to Bama. No interview - just pay me. Haha.

Ronald Steele is having arthroscopic knee surgery, according to Gottfried and Steele both said publicly that they didn't believe surgery would be needed - just rest. Guess they were wrong.

Wednesday's practice was the first day with pads. Coach Saban said that practice "was encouraging" and that he was pleased with the intensity and a sense of urgency.

Cecil tells us about how the players are getting over the initial nervousness with Coach Saban.

There hasn't been a lot written about Coach Steele, but knocks that out for ya.

Players are being moved around on defense, but Coach Saban doesn't consider them moves at all. Zeke Knight and Bobby Greenwood have been moved to outside linebacker from defensive end, but in Saban's 3-4 blitz happy package, they'll fit there perfectly. Prince Hall and Darrin Mustin will play inside linebacker.

"You can be as tired as a beaten dog but if you tell yourself you're fresh, you're going to keep moving. That's what it taught me. Come the fourth quarter, we will be better and can play a lot harder." - read more about the Fourth Quarter Program here.

Coach Saban is doing his best to get players to stop their bad habits. Also, Andy Davis, redshirt freshman defensive back, has quit the team.

The next practice is scheduled for Friday afternoon, and the first scrimmage will be on Saturday.
